~ Mother Joseph was a remarkable woman. She was both visionary and pragmatic – one who carried the needs of the poor and the vulnerable and sought to bring relief to the suffering. The “spirit” of Mother Joseph permeates our culture and our way of being in many ways. The “spirit” of Mother Joseph comes to life through your hearts and hands every day. This annual award is the highest honor we can bestow upon our nursing colleagues.
